Research Study Report > CHALCONE and Thrombus
A new component of CHALCONE was discovered recently from Hachi Jo Island Ashitaba. We named it "Xanthoangelo-E." Structurally, this chemical compound possesses a hydroperoxide base.
When the blood platelets are formed in the blood vessel so that the blood can not pass through, they are know as thrombus. When such situation appears in the brain, it causes cerebral infarction or cerebral thrombosis. When it appears in the heart, it causes cardiac infarction.
According to the findings of the research conducted by Dr. Naoru Fujita of the Osaka University of Pharmacy, the chemical compound - Xanthoangelol-E in the CHALCONE of Ashitaba might retard the formation of blood coagulation flavin A2. Blood coagulation flavin A2 is derived from the metabolism of Arachi donic acid, a high - grade fatty acid, and it helps the adherence and agglutination of blood platelets. Because of the possibility of retarding the formation of blood coagulation flavin A2, Ashitaba can be used in Thombus.
